My new Macbook Pro has bluetooth.  My phone also has it and has worked with my daughters laptop.  When i try to connect my phone gives the following message " Service not supported by other device" (my new Mac).  Any help please?

    Hello:

     

    Does the Bluetooth icon show on the Macbook Pro?

     

    In any event, try resetting the SMC.

    Thanks Barry.  Yes the icon does show.  Not sure what SMC is, but I looked at Bluetooth settings etc and low and behold my Mac connected to my phone and showed the files, which I successfully copied to my Mac.  Thanks very much for replying so soon.

    Hi:

     

    I am glad things are OK now! 

     

    For future reference, resetting the SMC (system management controller) occasionally fixes odd problems - including missing Bluetooth.  The instructions are in a knowledge base article in the web site.  There is no need to do it now, however, since everything seems to be fine!
